  1. A tractor crawler, a motorized vehicle that uses caterpillar tracks instead of wheels to achieve superior floatation and traction. Crawlers are more expensive in maintenance and harder to operate than wheel tractors, but are often critical for working on soft soils, transporting great weights, and especially for bulldozing.
  2. A child who is able to creep using his hands and knees but is not able to walk.
  3. A software bot that autonomously follows connected paths such as webpage links.
